Re: Actual reasons for induction
With my first, I was induced b/c we had hit my due date and he still was not born yet which was a concern b/c he has hydrocephalus which causes an enlarged head and they wanted to make sure he could still fit during a vaginal delivery.
With my 4th, I was induced again 2 days after my EDD b/c DH was home on R&R from Iraq and only had 14 days. I am otherwise only for induction for medically necessary reasons but I did not want my husband to miss the birth or have to leave only a couple of days after the birth and I am alone with 4 kids. It was bad enough with him leaving 11 days after giving birth.
